I have had this machine for about 1 year and am amazed at the quality of machine I have for the price I paid.
Being a professional seamstress for over 40 years, I had always used expensive high end machines, yet was at a loss after these were lost in a move. That's when I thought to find out how a Brother machine worked. How fortunate this one came along.
It handles everything I throw at it, from heavy jacket zippers to quilting large quilts to yards of upholstery/curtain and wedding dress fabrics.
Please read the manual a couple of times. Even though the machine is easy to use, it has details well explained in it.
I learned a valuable lesson in this; I don't need to spend a lot of money on a sewing machine for it to be a good one.
Sewing Is Fun Again!

I bought this machine to make a wedding dress and found that every bit of sewing I'd put off for years came out of hiding just so I could keep using it. Threading and bobbin winding are so easy and the see through bobbin case is a great innovation. I had no trouble switching presser feet for decorative stitches and loved the ease and convenience of digital settings for each stitch. It's a quiet, efficient machine, perfect for family sewing. I found the manual a bit overwritten but anyone familiar with the basics of sewing with a machine can figure out how to use it.
